republicans do. with obama care coming down the pike, so many people are going to part-time work, and they're being hurt. i mean, everyone i know in every possible industry is already seeing cut backs in advertising, cut backs and going to see the doctor. the economy is going to be a disaster. it's only going to get worse under obama. republicans are totally over the barrel because all tax cuts, bush tax cuts expire unless they agree to what is being portrayed as tax cuts for the rich. >> sean: boom. >> of course, let me finish the three points. it's not the rich. it's people who are currently engaged in making money or tax breaks as they say. for the rich i'd be more in favor of tax hikes on the rich. that's warren buffett and john kerry and diane feinstein. this is a tax on people desperately trying to become rich but the truly wish don't want them to. finally, the most important point is in two years we've got to take back the senate. >> sean: i don't want to talk about the election. >> the republicans need to concentrate on making sure this economy gets blamed on obama. there are thing
with a solution. >> that's true. that's what president obama -- he's been saying to republicans here and there, i'm willing to put more on the table but pour the moment, democrats are saying don't touch social security, don't cut medicare. this will come down to whoever blinks first on tax rates. republicans are going to bend on tax rates. maybe not $250,000 threshold, maybe closer to a million. but until that happens we won't see progress but obama will have to deal with problems on his left. he has to put entitlement reform, maybe raising the age of medicare down the road. >> when we look towards the beginning of the year and inauguration and seating of new congressional members, you'll have about 90 new folks that have been elected to get involved in this. is there a partial solution before that? and what changes do you expect given the fact we'll have new voices? >> i definitely think new voices -- they're going to be -- whatever deal is reached this year, and i think there will be a deal up until new year's eve, then you have members who are leaving voting. that could round up the votes beca
such little leverage in the talks of president obama. well, republicans should just get out of the way and let the democrats raise taxes as much as they want. and then let the president take responsibility for party of high taxes. now can i understand senator paul's thinking especially given the fact that the president has already announced ahead of his mano a mano meeting can john boehner that he won't concede an inch on tax cuts. this republican defeatism news broke of jim demint's departure from the senate yesterday. is he a tea party warrior and demint is a hero to part of the g.o.p.'s 2010 midterm route. now he is off to head off a think tank the heritage foundation. let's face it the g.o.p. needs new energy. it needs branding help. heck, we have a lot of issues resolve amongst ourselves before we even from a hope of rebuilding the movement to appeal to new generations of voters. of course, libertarians and social conservatives are probably never going abortion and gay marriage. they must find a way to agree on other critical issues. republican con sis tans on globalization, immigration r
on sensible steps on healthcare reform other than to repeal obama care. the republican party will continue to be adrift unless conservatives, still the most influential group within the party have a clear sense of what they stand for and what policies will best serve their cause and the nation's. so beyond the fiscal cliff resolution, we need to find better messengers, better candidates who are also media and tech savvy. whatever our differences, we can all agree as conservatives on a philosophy grounded in limited government, the free market and the judeo-christian tradition and this should be attractive to young and old black and white male or female voters. the most important thing is that we not despair. the problems we face today are no worse than the ones conservatives faced in the 1970 os when remember they had to deal with a weak economy and aggressive soviet union and the fallout from vietnam. they overcame those problems and they changed the world for the better. we can do the same. and that's the memo. now on to the top story tonight. the president's refusal to budge in negotiat
the feeling with each and every day as republicans move closer and closer to the obama position, that they are too afraid to go over the clip. they are too willing to make a deal, any deal, no matter how bad that might be. that's the danger. and there's a feeling out there these days in terms of the body language and the posture of the republican leadership, that's the direction they are headed. they look like they are atrade. they look like they want to deal and if they don't get one, the world is going to come crashing down on them. that's the mind-set that needs to change. so if boehner and company need to do are the following. one, they need to understand the game that obama is playing and they need to adjust accordingly to it. if obama is acting a way that isn't to help the economy but to destroy the republican party, they have to accept that and act wisely. it would be suicidable to assume you are dealing with a reasonable and flexible man what you are not. and two, house republicans need to advance legislation that needs to advance their agenda and send it to the senate.
that obama will have to come to the table with more spending cuts and entitlement reform and republicans might have to give in to some tax increases and the cbo do a recent report, saying if republicans get what they want in extending the entire bush tax cut plan. it would only increase the gd growth by 1.5%. if we do what president obama wants to do, it will only increase the gdp by 1.25%, having said that, it's just not about tax cuts, doug, it's more about cutting wasteful government spending. >> i was going to ask doug about that. doug, would you admit. since we have a democrat in the white house and also, the senate is democratically controlled. would you agree and how much is there of wasteful spending in washington? >> oh, there's a lot of wasteful spending, it's been around for before president obama was in office. and as i said before, he has, with the house republicans has already signed in law a trillion dollars in cut. and he'll do more. and i think that's encouraging and i think that shows he's willing to be plexable there, to angela's point which i agree with, a lot of what
, everybody, we're live in america's news headquarters, i'm jamie colby. president obama going off republicans on the looming fiscal cliff on the weekly radio address. accusing the house of blocking a bill aimed at year end middle tax cuts. >> they put forward an unbalanced plan that lowers rates for the wealthiest americans. >> if we want to protect the middle class, the math didn't work. >> meanwhile, florida senator marco rubio delivering the response, prosperity should come through job creation and smaller debt not taxes. >> we must get the debt under control. taxes will not control our debt. >> both sides of the issue. i'm jamie colby, back to cavuto on fox business, only on the fox news channel. >> what's the deal with the guy wearing sunglasses and saying nothing? >> and all over again in michigan, protesting the right to work bill. the scene almost identical to wisconsin last year and that state's battle over collective bargaining and then, what's going on? >> and i think it's always tough for unions to admit they've lost allure. i'm a union man and i know charlie is very fond of union
. if we are going to save america, republicans are the only ones to stop obama's radical agenda on the economy. similarly, we need to know our elections are free and fair. you believe you were cheated in this election? >> well, i would just quote the supervisor of elections from st. lucie county. when they sent up the supervised results, they said they knew they had regulators in the certified results. the certified results they sent up to st. lucie county were different from the election night results. furthermore, a box of 306 ballots were not included in the certified results. as well as in palm beach county the supervisor of election extended early voting to a sunday, which was against the law that was supposed to have ended the early voting on saturday. no one was able to understand to track the absentee ballots issued out. so if we do not have integrity of our voting process, if the american people lose trust and confidence, we become nothing more than a zimbabwe, and you don't have the confidence in the government. >> sean: what is the future for colonel west? you served
not raise tax rates. now republicans are pointing back to july 2011. this statement by president obama. >> yes, said give us $1.# trillion in additional revenues that could be accomplished without hiking tax rates, but could simply be accomplished by eliminating loopholes. eliminating deductions. and engaging in a tax reform process that could lowered rates generally while broadening the base. >> bret: the white house is saying it's out of context but not specifically how out of context. bring in the panel. steve hayes for "weekly standard." kirsten powers for daily beast. syndicated columnist, charles krauthammer. charles? >> look, i love when the president says we need conceptual break through. meaning the republicans have to accept a hike in rates. what he means is a political surrender. because there is no economic reason why you cannot raise the money he wants raised. by doing it through eliminating deductions, inclusions and credit. number one as we saw he, himself, said so. a year-and-a-half ago. secondly, the same debt reduction commission he appointed and then ignored. spoke a
is senator marco rubio a republican from florida. first off, senator, why did your state go for obama. >> first, thank you, bill, for having me on. throughout the campaign i said florida would be very close and competitive state. let's start by admitting the on oous the president ran a very good grass roots operation. they invested a the love money into the infrastructure and technology. we should look and learn from that. technological high ground always wins from these things. >> bill: i'm perplexed because i thought florida would go for mitt romney based upon the economy primarily but romney spent a lot of time and money there. but what did the -- what message that the president brought to florida sueded for him? >> i'm not sure if it's the president's message. it's the message that we need to do a better job as a movement. not just the republican party. those who believe in limited government and preenterprise have to do a better and more consistent job of explaining to people why free enterprise is better for them. >> bill: elected you in florida. they elected governor scott. bot

barack obama wants meaningful cuts in government? really? really? >> as much as republicans do. look, he got attacked all through the campaign for cutting medicare, right? so the people who claim that they want all these cuts, what do they do? they attack the president when he proposes cuts and they refuse to put anything specific on their proposal. what they sent back was just a number. >> bill: all right. okay. i got it. i got it. i got it. i'm just tired of this whole business. i think we should cut 10% across the board and then, you know, keep taxes the way they are and try to stimulate the economy by the private sector. plenty more ahead as the factor moves along this evening. >> i will tell diane. >> bill: charlie brown thrown under the bus by a church pastor in arkansas. how could this possibly happen in america? tell you what's going on. also, dennis miller having to deal with more of his money being taken away from him. d-man not happy about that and we hope you stay >> factor follow up segment tonight. again today some members of the obama administration met with members of con

-down time in washington. president obama and the democrats, versus the house republicans and the so-called fiscal live. after weeks of negotiations, publicly, at least, talks have stalled, as the two sides have battled it out over tax hikes hs and entitlement reform. but what can be done about the nation's out-of-control spending. tim murphy is here now. chairman of the house oversight and investigations subcommittee for the energy and commerce committee. good to see you in person. welcome to new york. >> who do you think is going to blink? president obama says he wants the tax hikes to go up on the wealthy. >> we both better get together and come up with a solution. that's what the american family wants. all the other issues, we have to remember, it's what takes place, not at the 30,000 foot level, but at the kitchen table level. that's where the people are very concerned. will they have a job tomorrow? will their children have a job in the future? that means we have to deal with the deficit and the spending. we cannot continue to do this. the president's issue of unlimited power t
the democratic process. the republican numbers went down much more than barack obama's did last year. i think they have to be careful about what they are doing here. >> i think the reason simon doesn't like it is because it gives the republicans leverage to force the president to deal with the debt. the president has as much chance of succeeding as you have of getting john bolton to cry on your show. megyn: i think i can do it. a challenge? >> i bet you can. in the last 27 years, every significant debt reduction bill that passed starting with graham rosen has been linked to a debt limit increase. this is the only tool in washington that forces both sides to do something about the debt and spendersing. so republicans aren't going to give this up because it's the only tool they have in this political situation to stop the president from going forward. and the reality is last year speaker boehner set an important resident. it's called the boehner rule. one dollar in spending increase for one dollar for debt limit increase. you balance the budge net 10 years without raising taxes. the republicans
have announce of compassion this christmas season, save it for john boehner and the house republicans. president obama is treating them as if he has them over a barrel headed if for fiscal cliff. and he does. this is not because mr. obama won re-election. after all, he won 51%. needed the greatest voter mobilization operation in history to do it. his leverage now stems from the law, which ends the bush tax rates on january 1, imposing new higher tax rate and a steep set of spending cuths that fall with special force on military. nobody wants these things but republicans, the low tax and strong defense party, want them least of all. not only that. but polls indicate that if these things come to pass, the public by large margin will blame the g.o.p. speaker boehner is trying to head this off bargaining with the president to keep tax rates they are now and raising revenue and closing tax loophole. mr. boehner want the president to agree to serious reform of the entitlement benefit. mr. obama says he wants to higher tax re-knew and higher tax rates on the rich to boot. but he has offered
. the skicliff is tax hikes cominn january 1st. it could send us back into recession. president obama and congressional republicans blocking a deal to avoid an economic catastrophe. marco rubio addressing the public says it does nothing to solve the long-term problem of a ballooning national debt. >> tax increases will not solve our debt only economic growth will help control the debt. house republicans have a democratic bill that already passed the senate. the republican alternative will not work. >> the senate has already done their part. now we are waiting for republicans in the house to do the same thing. but so far they have put forward an unbalanced plan that lowers the rates for the wealthiest americans. >> the tax hikes on americans. they say voters made it clear when he was elected. >> he is a democrat. former florida governor carlie fritz making it official after two years as an independent. he's seen as a candidate former challenger republican rick scott in 2014. we have a message for christ. bring it on. he was elected in 2006 but ran for senator after losing the republica
and we actually don't know when it was or what was said. and we do know who. president obama and republican house speaker john boehner sitting down for a private meeting. we can tell you the meeting apparently the latest effort to keep us all from going over what some analysts predict would be another recession, triggeri triggering events the fiscal cliff. is tax hikes and deep spending cuts january 1st if law makes can't come up with an alternative. no word if any progress was made. both men issuing statements about the talks, saying the lines of communication remain open. and police in london are owning up to authorities in awes as as the investigation deepens into an of radio station's hoax call made to the hospital. and made by these two. and they managed to dupe a nurse into giving out personal, private information and that nurse, by the way, may have committed suicide. so far police have not exactly linked her death to the prank and now for the time being, we're hearing from members of her family. >> and i'll really miss her a lot. she was a good sister-in-law, i can't
obama and john boehner, the two sides appear to be no closer to a compromise. are republicans working on the scenes on a plan b? wall street journal columnist, dan henninger and kim strassel. you have bean working the phones, is there something going on between speaker boehner and the president? >> no, i think that they are nowhere and it's because the president is refusing to budge at all on the top toks ratestopx rates and we'll go off the cliff if the republicans don't acreed to that demand. so we're still at a stand still. >> paul: kim, why is the president so insistent on increasing tax rates? boehner has already put on the table a comparable amount of money to be gained from putting a cap on deductions, about 800 billion over ten years, so such a-- >> look, paul, two reasons. first is ideological. his partisans, his liberal base believe this is somehow a symbol of winning the tax fight and you can only do that by raising the rates on the wealthy in the country and they're insistent on that. the other thing the president is interested in, he wants a double deal and wants to raise
's capital despite the chill between democrats and republicans. >> president obama dug in his heels insisting on tax increase or higher earners. >> and they both agree he that the other's proposals are ridiculous. >> just a sampling of the coverage this week as the media keep a watch on what's done or not to avert the fiscal cliff. >> jim shall the overriding theme in the media seems to be that president obama won the election and therefore should do what he wants and the media seems to forget na john boehner and everyone else won their elections as well and they're a co-equal branch of government. >> i think the media loves the story of president obama's comeback and the new york time describes him as disciplined and unyielding and focused on this and i think there are other media stories as well. the second media story or narrative. which one wants to grow by virtue of the tax increases and get new perspective from the mainstream media and the third is mcconnell and boehner back and forth. and the media want to praise him if they raise taxes and. the sort of grover norquist and he's a funny

his hands of all of his failures and then arrogantly blame the republican party. to make matters worse, we're learning today that president obama is a far cry away from waging this battle by his lonesome. as usual, his friends in the main stream media have been willing to continue to do whatever he wants and that means to say whatever it takes to try and fool you, the american people, into thinking that raising taxes is your only option. the extent to which so-called journalists have been spreading his propaganda is now in a brand new study. according to this report, the chief offender of that left wing bias is none other than abc news. yes, it turns out that in the three weeks following the election the net woul network cd obama's favorite issue which is raising taxes 17 times more than spending cuts, and all told, 10 minutes and 18 seconds were devoted to taxes. compared to a whopping 35 seconds of air time on house spending cuts might be a useful tool in actually tackling our debt. not surprisingly, that trend was-mile-an-hou mirrored all across the major networks. here with reactio
: last week i said let obama have what he wants. republican member should vote present. maybe not even let him go off the cliff. let it go through and let barack obama have what he wants. people voted for it. we slide in recession and we say look, we had it their way. i think they are not carrying about the nation's future. right now, $136,000 household in debt. this is about getting re-elec re-elected. i want to say something quickly about the simpsons. it's dangerous to trivialize what is going on. simpson, if we go up the fiscal cliff simpsons are hit the hardest. the taxes go up 9,000%. writers of the simpson, the taxes will skyrocket. this isn't a joke. >> bob: you are right. but this is not going to happen. there is adjustment to social security. real cuts. >> eric: you know what -- >> bob: can i say something? >> eric: you add ornaments to add things. in obama added this little thing the other day. he said i don't want a debt ceiling or bound like it going for it. debt doesn't matter. >> bob: respond to the social security thing. >> eric: obama in october of 2008 before he was p

tobin live in lansing. thank you. president obama is vehemently against the michigan right to work law. he spoke against it yesterday near detroit. earlier today, the republicans accused the president of deliberately delaying talks to get the country office call cliff. late this afternoon, word of a new offer from the president. an g.o.p. counter offer. we have been told the president and the house speaker boehner spoke on the phone moments ago. chief white house correspondenthead entry has the update. good evening. is that promising? >> some promising signs tonight. i confirmed what you mention about the phone call today. late today between the president and the speaker. that followed what i'm told by the senior officials of what is a better than has been reported face to face meeting on sunday when the president and speaker got together for the hush-hush meeting here that it went better. on monday, the president put a new offer on the table to lower the tax increase from $1.6 trillion to $1.4 trillion. then the speaker late today put a counter offer on the table so in profit making p
and resolve these sort of issues. >> we know that barack obama speaks for democrats who speaks for republicans nowf? >> i think john boehner is the closest thing to a republican voice. he holds let's say the key to the lock. he is the most powerful republican in congress. my feeling is boehner wants to work something out. he has got to go home not only to his own constituents but every republicans in america and some in the house who aren't easy to pull along he he imant go to them and given up that tax bracket for the 2% and theying say what did you gte mr. baker? nothing yet. he can't do that with a straight face his own party will crucify him over that. >> over 50% that we fall off? >> i wouldn't have said that two weeks ago today. i think that's probably right and it's unnecessary. >> geraldo: hopefully he will mine sift the speak and he will have something more substantial in h 2 o. >> i hope so. >> great to see you geraldo. >> was it the lack of gun control or confession that caused nfl player to commit suicide. see what the newly legalized pot industry in washington state and soon in co
for president obama. not because of fraud that may have taken place. it was much more because the republican party completely, in this election cycle completely wrote off. >> you can help me out here? my mom is 93 years old. she is proud of voting. she doesn't drive anymore. she has no photo i.d. what's she going to do? >> one is in kansas if you are 65 years or older she can use expired. she can using that expired license from the 1960's if she has got it. if she is permanently disabled we have a special category for disabled voters who can't get to it a state office to get a free photo i.d. niger is right we provide a free photo i.d. to anyone who says i don't have a photo i.d. make sure no one else is fraudly claim to be multiplicity of part-time geraldo her her got to leave it there up nixz you will hear from the donald on whether he has any regress regagagagagagaga >> h are you feeling in the wake of the election? >> well, i feel like somebody won the election and did he a great job. and the republicans just didn't resonate with the people and lots of reasons and lots of different theor
say go to 37%. >> that's the deal that obama says he would come down to, 37. the republicans say raise medicare eligibility. the left is completing freaking out over raising medicare eligibility and the right is freaking out about the tax rates. so they have to decide. the administration is clear that the tax rates have to go up. obama has given in on this before and so there's pressure on him. there's a lot of pressure on house democrats so i think if they can come to some sort of agreement on the rate and if republicans are willing to push the other stuff to next year, that's a deal. i mean -- >> but i think what argues against a big deal that includes any sort of cuts for instance up front on the entitlement side is republicans, if tax -- tax rates are going up either way either because you're going over a cliff or because the president will force you into a deal. they don't want to take responsibility for the economic fallout that comes. so if they agree to a big deal that includes spending cuts their fingerprints are all over it. it's likely they'll send something that extends the
to coburn, sham bliss and senator crystal and say it's time to -- republicans don't need this fight. it's not a winning fight for them politically. the third thing, which people don't say, this could be damage to go president obama. he wants to begin his second term forward looking, not loss in a sea of economic fear and people would blame him for taking away unemployment benefits, no dock fix. letting taxes go up on everything. that's not what he wants. >> chris: payroll taxes. >> right. both sides have strong incentives to make a deal. not to mention they want to get out of town for christmas. >> bill, given all of that, and you were one of the early people who said republicans -- i just felt we would remind those who may have missed it, you said republicans don't want to fight over tax increases for millionaires. what's the smart play for republicans at this point and how do they get -- because it's all about taxes. how do they get the deficit debate back to spending and entitlements? >> they can do that next year once taxes are off the table. these pass an extension of all bush tax
under bush a republican and obama a democrat. it doesn't work. >> let's talk about some of the things these good intentions have clean energy. >> solyndrsolyndra. >> that is just one example. >> we have had dozens go bad but it is the story behind the story. if they are they are a paid contributor or getting loans you are destroying tackle in the country. >> it basically means workers get hoer ages. we have laws that encourage home ownership. president bush sasz are you home? >> next in the housing bubble that blows up. the very people we are supposed to be it dabble to walk on the tank. we have tax credits that is supposed to direct our spending to good things. oo it sounds great but from a tiny packs go from 1913 only 2 pages into this 72,000 pajz monster. if you go to the irs web site there's more than a bud enforms you could download. nobody under sands it paul a big no spoener around the necks of the american economy. every one has something in it that probably sounds good but look what it adds up to. >> lastly on the spending. the machinery is a welfare state. we have to take ca
, closing loopholes and not raising rates. >> right. basically the republicans came up with what obama said in 2011. he wanted, there was discussion dealing with $1.2 trillion and he said we don't have to increase tax rates. we can close loopholes. we can cap deductions. that is what the republicans are offering. but right now defend again i think democrats are bent on increasing taxes and if woe don't avert the fiscal cliff, i believe republicans will take the hit politically. jon: the president in september of 2011 said, you know, in his principles for tax reform, lower tax rates, the tax system should be simplified and work for all americans with lower individual and corporate rates and fewer brackets. now it sounds like exactly what the republican side has offered here? >> it is. what they're offering but basically to reach a comprehensive deal so we can put this debt on a downward turn, and actually create a stronger economy. both sides, the democrats and republicans are going to have to give a little bit now. republicans might have to give in to some type of tax increase but president

the atableggers motivation is still unknown. claim raised further questions from republicans about the obama administration's singular focus on the anti-islam video. >> why did you hone in on just that part and focus in on just that part for so long rather than just say this isn't a black and white issue as general clapper said today. >> one of those motivations may very well be either the video or the response to the video in cairo and certainly that can't be ruled out. >> fox news has also confirmed that the decision to shut down the cia annex happened in the early morning hours of september 12th after the annex took indirect fire from two mortars. while the annex was cleared of classified information and equipment, in less than 10 hours to this day the consulate, which is less than a mile away has never been secured, harris. >> catherine herridge, thank you very much. >> you are welcome. >> we massive battle on the streets of capital today right outside the presidential palace. people said to be hitting each other with stick and stones and fire bombs. can you see that yourself. dozens rep
years under president obama. here's what we know. not from democrats or republicans, but from the congressional budget office, a nonpartisan group that says this. if we go over the cliff, what secretary geithner said obama is willing to do, if we go over, we can expect to lose 1 .$8 million. if we do what the president wants, which is to raise taxes on the small businesses, we will lose 700,000 jobs. or if we do what republicans want to do, keep tax rates where they are, we lose zero jobs. so your point is go over the cliff and lose $1.8 million, do what the president wants and lose 700,000 jobs or do what the republicans want and lose zero jobs. our goal is trying to get closest to losing no jobs. >> but the problem is you are not get to go the zero jobs promise. you don't have the numbers. that's your problem. you don't have the numbers or the momentum. how are you going to turn that around? >> well, you are right. and to pat's point earlier in your program, look, i wish we controlled the house, the senate and the white house. i wish the republicans had complete control beca
take home pay and those things. that is a bad scenario. >> the league negotiator on the republican side of the table facing mr. obama says raiding taxes on upper -- raising taxes on upper income americans is not going to fix the problem that the country is facing. >> even the president got the tax rate hike he wanted understand we would continue to see trillion dollar deficits for as far as the eye can see. listen, washington has got a spending problem, not a re-knew problem. >> for many top democrats it's all about taxes and not spending cuts in averting the fiscal cliff. >> the facts are at that point the 39.6% does produce the revenue. the differentiation between 39.6% and the 28% at that the president has for limitation on deduction creates a great deal of money as well. >> one conservative financial commentator suggests the likely outcome of the fiscal cliff talks won't be the end of the world. >> we will have taxes that are the same as the taxes were under bill clinton. we did find that we will do fine. >> the question is whether the negotiations will lead to making other tough ch
that president obama only wants the top two% to g two percent t. >> greta: do you anticipate republicans will vote for a rate increase if this should come to a vote? >> i don't believe they'll vote for a rate increase. what we'll vote for hopefully is to extend the current tax rates permanently and start working with president obama on true pro growth tax reform, but again, it sounds like treasury secretary geithner is happy to take the economy off the fiscal cliff, and again, if president obama wants to do that, he can do that, it sounds like that's exactly where he wants to go, and you know, what is kind of amazing, maybe republicans should take, you know, a victory lap from the fact that we've actually convinced democrats it's a good thing to maintain the bush tax cuts for at least 98% of the american population. i guess that's a good thing. i hope, i hope if president obama decides to increase taxes on the top two percent at a minimum he exempts business income. people or businesses that report their income through subchapter s, that would be a positive sign. maybe he can give some g
